Your Support

None of what we do and aspire to do can be done without your support which shows us you care about our work and about the animals we love and protect.
There are many ways you can support us.

Please donate

We are a small charity with a lot of concern and affection for elephants and very serious ambitions for the future. We wish to show by example what can be done to help, conserve and preserve the Asian elephant in safe and secure surroundings in Thailand.

STEF is run by volunteers, so we have almost no overheads, which means your contributions go directly to fund projects in Thailand to help elephants.  We carefully monitor the projects we support to ensure that your generosity makes a real difference where it is most needed.  See updates on one of major projects, an elephant veterinary centre near Khok Kloi, in our news section.

Fundraise for us

Please help to fundraise for us in any way you can.
You can collect donations for any sponsored event or appeal. Please contact us and we’ll be happy to help you.


Many of the projects we work with are often looking for Volunteers, for example to help with creating and maintaining a centre for the Asian elephant. All applicants must be committed to elephant welfare, education, learning about the Asian elephant in Thailand and be prepared to work hard. In exchange, the projects can offer a very rewarding stay and a life-enhancing experience with elephants. If you are interested, please contact us in the first instance and we can advise you of opportunities that may be suitable for you.
